Sounds like you guys are just tweaking and cleaning up which I great!

For being one of the younger features it surely has matured and almost finished growing quick.

The next new feature for this should be remote CMD and PS boxes for Windows and remote Terminal for Linux.

Hello @StrobeTech ,

Thanks for the suggestion!
We have acknowledged the idea and we`ll keep you updated on its progress.


Unfortunately, until you introduce screen recording, we can’t use the application, except when our primary remote access tool is not working or has an outage. To protect our technicians, we need to record their actions on clients’ systems.

Can you not just use a standard desktop recording program for Windows / Linux and save the file to the ticket?
